Amazingly, three teams remain undefeated and top the 2018 EPL standings as of October 15, after facing eight matches. The three teams, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool share equal points at the top of the table, whereas there are three more teams that are yet to win a single match – Newcastle, Cardiff, and Huddersfield.
To be one of the top four qualifiers in an English Premier League is the ultimate aim of the teams participating in the league. In accordance with the changes made in the format of the European competitions, the UEFA declared that the top four winning teams of the premier league will qualify directly to the upcoming Champions’ League group stages. As per the stats maintained by the sportsbook, there might be an intriguing battle for the top four places among the following five teams.
Manchester City is the defending champion which stands as the No.1 team in the 2018 top teams of the English Premier League. The City has faced eight games and has won six with two games resulting in a draw. Manchester City has the highest goal difference – 18, because of which the team ranks 1st. Guardiola’s men were the first to initiate the Premier League against the Unai Emery’s Arsenal team. The City defeated the Arsenal 2-0 on the opening day of the league. The Arsenal was playing without Arsene Wenger, the former manager of Arsenal for the first time and suffered a defeat.
According to Pep Guardiola, Sergio Aguero is in his best form as he scored an amazing hat-trick against the Huddersfield resulting in a 6-1 win at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero scored his first goal in the first half and added two goals after the break, making his 13th career hat-trick and ninth in the Premier League. The next game ended up in a 1-1 draw against the Wolverhampton Wanderers which made the City drop points for the first time in the League at Molineux, whereas the Wolves are on two points from their opening three games.
The City get back into their winning streak by defeating Newcastle United 2-1 at Etihad Stadium. They fill in the gap between Chelsea and Liverpool by two points. The stunning maiden goal of Kyle Walker resulted in the City’s victory. Silva, Sane, and Sterling net goals as Manchester City defeated Fulham 3-0 at Etihad Stadium. This victory makes the 18th win of the last Premier League home games for the City. Sergio Aguero made his 205th goal for the club and defeated Cardiff City 5-0 at Cardiff City stadium. Riyad Mahrez was crowned as an incredibly talented player by Guardiola as he scored his first goal for the team.
The next victory for the City was against the Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium. As the team moves forward with an unbeaten record, Sterling and Sergio score for the City and finish the game in a victory. The final game for the weekend was against the Liverpool which resulted in a goalless draw 0-0 at Anfield. This match made the team reach the top of the list with a goal difference of 18.
Chelsea is the second EPL team with just 5 goal difference less than that of the Manchester City. Having played eight games, won six games, scored 18 points and with a goal difference of 13, Chelsea is waiting for the opportunity to top the list and win the season. Maurizio Sarri, the manager of the Blues made a winning start at Huddersfield Town by defeating Huddersfield 3-0 who had profuse early pressure, with a cool shot after the penalty shootout. Chelsea got their second victory by beating Arsenal 3-2 at Stamford Bridge with Marcos Alonso bringing in the late yet timely strike to finish the game.
Chelsea was determined to take hold of the winning streak and so the next victory came in by defeating Newcastle United 2-1 at St. James Park. This was the third successive win for Chelsea with Eden Hazard doing his trademark run. Chelsea maintains a flawless start by defeating AFC Bournemouth 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. Pedro and Eden Hazard who came in as substitutes scored the two goals and gave the Blues victory. This victory leveled up the points with the leader Liverpool. According to Maurizio Sarri, Eden Hazard is the best player in Europe as Chelsea defeats Cardiff City 4-1 with Eden scoring a hat-trick. For the first time since 2010, Chelsea has won five successive Premier League season matches.
Maurizio Sarri had high hopes on the winning streaks which ended at London stadium as the game ended in 0-0 draw between Chelsea and West Ham United. Chelsea’s sixth successive win was denied by West Ham who had four straight defeats until the Chelsea – West Ham game. Sarri’s disappointment continued as Chelsea ended up the game with Liverpool as a 1-1 draw. Sturridge’s late goal equalizer, however, was a satisfactory start to Chelsea reign for Sarri. The Blues march on by defeating Southampton 3-0 at St. Mary’s stadium. This victory helped the Blues move a step forward to the Liverpool team by one point.
Liverpool stands as the third team in the 2018 top EPL teams. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made his intention very clear on pushing his team to clinch the silverware after securing top players into the team. Liverpool began the season in style, as they beat West Ham United 4-0 at Anfield. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane scored open goals giving Liverpool a lead. Manuel Pellegrini faced his first defeat as a manager in charge of the West Ham with Jack Wilshere trying his best to score a goal.
Sadio Mane’s late strike sealed a 2-0 win for the Liverpool against the Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park. With the penalty shot given to James Milner, he took full control of the ball and scored a goal making Liverpool advance. The Liverpool reached the top place in the Premier League list by defeating Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 at Anfield. Mohamed Salah is proving to be a key player of the team by striking clear-cut hits. Brighton was beaten but not without a fight as they focused more on defense and failed to score a goal.
The next successive victory of the Liverpool was against the Leicester City 2-1, beating all the odds committed by Alisson. Since 1990, for the first time, Liverpool has won their first four league matches. The Liverpool’s fifth successive win came at the Wembley stadium against the Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 maintaining a perfect start of the league. Klopp defined the fixture as one of the best games of the season and was even happier with the team as they won 3-0 against Southampton. The game at Anfield ended in the first half itself as the hosts scored three goals and were just defending goals in the second half of the game. This was perhaps the easiest game of Liverpool’s victory record.
The Liverpool’s next two matches were against Chelsea and Manchester City which ended up in a draw. Liverpool, as well as Chelsea, started their unbeaten record of the Premier League season with a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. With Eden Hazard’s strike at the 25th minute, the Reds were under pressure to tally the score. Having missed a lot of opportunities, Daniel Sturridge curled an amazing shot at the 89th minute and ended the game in a draw. Similarly, the game between Liverpool and Manchester ended 0-0 draw, with the City missing the chance of late penalty by Riyad Mahrez at Anfield. On basis of the goal difference, the City tops the list whereas the Liverpool move to the third place.
Arsenal is on the fourth place in the 2018 top EPL teams. Arsenal has faced eight games out of which they have won six games and tally with the Hotspur’s points. Though the kickoff of the season did not go well for the Arsenal, they filled in the breach with exciting back-to-back wins in the following matches. Unai Emery, the head coach of Arsenal faced defeat on his Arsenal debut against the Manchester City 0-2 at the Emirates stadium. Followed by their first defeat, the Arsenal played against Chelsea and lost 2-3 with Marcos Alonso’s late goal at the Stamford Bridge. This is the last match lost by the team, followed by continuous victories.
Though the transitions were not so convincing according to Unai Emery, the team clinched their first win against the West Ham United 3-1 at Emirates stadium. This match was a knock for their difficult start turning the season into a real struggle. Arsenal later secured their first away win against the Cardiff City 3-2 at the Cardiff City stadium and continued working as they defeated Newcastle United 2-1 at St. James’ Park which was the Arsenal’s third successive Premier League win.
The Arsenal’s next victory was against the Everton 2-0 at the Emirates with Alexandre Lacazette’s fine second-half strike. The well said ‘Patience pays off’ is what exactly happening with the Arsenal as they win their next game against Watford 2-0 at the Emirates. Arsenal has been maintaining a hot winning streak with the recent victory against Fulham 5-1 with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring doubles.
Having played eight games and lost two of them, the Tottenham Hotspur are on the fifth position in the 2018 top EPL teams. They are just two points off to top the list following the 0-0 draw between Liverpool and Manchester City. The Tottenham’s 100 percent winning start was shattered after Watford finished a stunning 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road with the Watford moving forward in their winning path. Followed by the first defeat, the Hotspur lost their next game to Liverpool with a 1-2 score otherwise they would be pretty atop the table.
The Tottenham had no deals of signing players and had numerous injury issues all season so far, yet have reflected how contended they are with the existing players and their performance at the field shows their keenness to win the title. The Spurs after a slow start grew in authority with an emphatic victory at Old Trafford by defeating the Manchester United 3-0. The Spurs are in good form, sneaking wins over Newcastle, Brighton, Huddersfield, and Cardiff City. For the first time in the Premier League era, the Hotspurs have won six of their first eight games.
